Default 48 Volt Upgrade Steps

Currently have a Medalist 36V DCS. Thinking of making the switch to 48V, but wondering what is needed. Besides the obvious battery change, anyone have a list of the needed changes? I have already done a motor upgrade with PlumQuick and have a 400 Amp XCT controller and upgraded solenoid. I am hoping the controller can run with both 36 and 48...

Sounds like the only other thing you will need is a 48v charger...

@jake, I hope you are right. Only thing that worried me a bit is that the XCT controllers are sold as 36 and 48 volt, was hoping it is just a programming change and not a hardware change.

Oh that's right. What model number is printed on the sticker on the controller?

The number is XCT48-400DCS, which I think is the 48V controller. Either I was lucky or maybe I mentioned a future upgrade to 48V.

It's a 48v controller- you're good to go.

So from you see, new batteries, new charger and voltage converter to run all the 12v stuff and I should be set?

I was worried also about F/R switch, etc. All the gotchas that you forget about until the build out.

With a DCS, there's no need to upgrade the FNR. That's only on series carts.

Yep I think you're good. A DCS is a sepex drive system, so the directional switching should be done by the controller, if I'm not mistaken.

Are these steps the same for a 2001 TXT conversion to 48v? Any recommendations on 8v batteries?
